October Favorite Beauty Products

SLEEK I-DIVINE STORM PALETTE

I’d been wanting this palette for quite some time after seeing all the amazing reviews and I’m really glad I decided to buy it. I can actually say that it is my all time favorite beauty product. The palette comes with 12 eye shadows, which are perfect for day and night looks. They are very pigmented, great for blending and have a strong staying power. I have to say that the two brown matte colors could be a little bit more pigmented, but I can overlook this flaw since all the other eye shadows are so amazing. The packaging is also really cool. It’s compact, the size is great for travelling, and it also comes with an aplicator and a great big mirror. All in all, I would strogly recommend this palette to everyone. It’s such a bargain!

Price: 8,5€ for 12×1.1g    (I got it for 11€ in my country)

ONE BY ONE VOLUM’ EXPRESS MASCARA BY MAYBELLINE

I once borrowed this mascara from my sister and I instantly fell in love with it. I bought myself a new one about a month ago and it soon became my favorite mascara. It seperates your lashes, lengthens them, holds a curl and even adds some volume. However, a week ago, after a month of using it, the mascara started to become really dry, flaky and a little bit difficult to work with (I once came home looking like a panda). I really don’t know what to think of it anymore. It was perfect until a week ago and now it’s a complete mess. Is it possible that they just sold me an old one at the shop? Did anyone else experience similar problems?

Price: I paid about 10€ for 10,4 ml

AVON NATURALS HONEY LIP BALM


You probably all know about the Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm, right? I’ve heard only great things about it, but I can’t get it in my country, so I jumped at the opportunity and bought an Avon one when I saw it in a recent catalogue. Like a Burt’s Bees one, it also contains beeswax and I love it! It smells great, doesn’t have a taste, contains vitamin E, is very moisturizing and leaves a great, waxy feeling on your lips. I always have problems with dry lips during colder months, but they haven’t been dry since I started using this product. As I have said, I use it on my lips, but you can also use it for your cuticles and your dry skin on your elbows. I really have nothing bad to say about this product. The only thing I would maybe change is the packaging.  You have to use your fingers to get out the product, so it can get a bit messy. 

Price: 1,70€ for 15 ml

    I use that mascara and I really like it, but I have found its getting flaky and I`ve had it for about 2 months, so maybe the formula dries out or something. But it`s really great otherwise!Carrie

    I hate when you have to use your fingers to put things on your lips. I hate that messy factor.

    Burt's Bees izdelke lahko kupiš v Nami in Maximarketu v Ljubljani. Ampak – iskreno – meni se ne zdijo ravno "all that and a bag of chips". Edino, kar mi je res dobro, je njihova krema za obnohtno kožico. Drugo bi kamot pogrešala. 😉 In btw: super blog! 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by the blog! I got so excited when I realized that makeup companies tend to come out with palettes of eye shadows/lip colors etc towards the holidays! They always make such a great deal ~jen

    Thank you for your comments girls! <3@ Elizabeth I bought in on some slovenian website (they don't deliver abroad), but you can also buy it on the original site (www.sleekmakeup.com).@Anonymous A res? Nisem vedela! Hvala za informacijo, bom šla prečekirat asap. Sicer si pa ne mislim ne vem kaj kupovati. Imela bi le tale lip balm (ko mi Avonovega zmanjka).@Alja Kar daj si, priporočam. Sicer sem jaz do zdaj preizkusila le tole paleto, ampak imam občutek, da so tudi druge stvari ful dobre. Le o 'Au Naturel' paleti sem slišala nekaj slabih kritik, saj baje mat barve niso dobro pigmentirane.
